25 Apr – Karina Bautista recently revealed that she is open to the idea of joining a beauty pageant in the future, say in three years' time.
The actress, who spoke to Star Magic Inside News recently, stated that she is still too young and inexperienced at her age of 20, but that she may do so when she turns 23 or 24.
"Like when the day comes, I know my core better, it seems like all my values are really enriched, so I think it's the best time to join like around 24, 23 or 25, something like that," she said.
Karina stated that she has always been interested to join the national pageants, seeing that she started off joining beauty competitions at 15 as a way of living.
"That's where I gained the confidence to act. Because I used to be boyish. So, it's really me and my passion to be able to walk on the Binibining Pilipinas stage," she said.
Asked which beauty queen she idolises, she named Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray.
"With her, I learned that your answers don't need to be scripted. It's okay to have a few lines memorised but emotions should come from the heart and that comes from being genuine for what your advocacy is," she said.
